Fixing Crop Issue During Batch Editing


Recently at Capture One Live Show, we were discussing batch editing, and that topic inspired this tip of the week.​
There is a common problem with coping and applying adjustments in Capture One:
If you have cropped an image, your crop will get copied along with other corrections to Adjustments Clipboard. Of course, you can uncheck Crop tool in the list each time, but here is a better solution on how to not copy crop settings:

1. Go to Adjustments Clipboard preferences and turn off “Autoselect Adjusted” option.

2. Now, click “Select All” and manually remove a checkbox from Crop tool in the list.

That is it; now you’ll apply all the adjustments from one image to another except Crop.
Well, I would also recommend unchecking some other options there which are mostly specific for every image. Like Rating or Lens Correction, for example, but it’s up to you.​
